After a year, or so, of running bookmarks on Tumblr, I decided to bring the series back to my blog. It is a little more labor intensive to run the series here, but I like the look and feel more. I think that I will keep my Tumblr, and use it for sharing more random or spur-of-the-moment things. If you like this series coming back to my blog, I’d appreciate hearing from you.
This post will be longer than usual, because I have a lot of bookmarked articles and videos.
Now that I have returned to social media, I am looking at how I can use and/or integrate some social media servies with my blog. The first step is to move my bookmarks installment to Tumblr. Hopefully I will be forced to get writing to fill the white space of this blog left by moving some content to other services,
I actually think moving bookmarks to Tumblr will be good for those who follow the series. Instead of holding my links for a week, or more, I will post links to articles and videos on a rolling basis — so be sure to check my Tumblr regularly! With that said, I do have a number of links and videos that I have saved in my Pocket account. I am starting to load those links, so the first couple of pages will be a bit of “catch up.” Please enjoy, and let me know how you like bookmarks on Tumblr.

I am trying something a little different this week with bookmarks post. Instead of my normal, and somewhat painstaking (ahem…I mean labor of love), method of copying links, one-by-one, over from Pocket (a great tool) to my blog to create this post, I am letting Springpad do the heavy lifting. I am a huge fan of Springpad, and it has become my default site and app for note-taking, web-clipping, idea collaboration with family and friends, and overall means to “remember” everything. Let me know what you think of this format. Is it more appealing and easier, or do you prefer the “old” way of bulleted articles, and clearly marked sections for articles, videos and the jazz spotlight?
Well…that didn’t go as planned. Ugh! Unless there is a configuration code somewhere that I don’t see, it appears that the display limit for embedded Springpad folders is five rows or 20 items. Ugh. I’ll keep the folder public on Springpad in case you want to go there and see what the whole folder looks like. (click here) Until I can figure a way to display the entire contents of a folder in a single post on my blog, it’s back to the old format.
